heartbreak hotel  
I really enjoyed Slumdog Millionaire while watching it but, much like with Juno, as soon as I came out of the cinema and pondered a bit, I decided I didn't like it at all. Did anyone else have this experience? (On the other hand, also like Juno - the soundtrack was AWESOME; I intend to buy it post-haste.)

Yesterday I got my hair cut. I went in and said, "I've been growing out my hair for two years, this requires a lot of dedication because it grows at a rate of one millimetre per century, I love it this length, CUT IT ALL OFF IMMEDIATELY." I lost four inches in one foul swoop. You'll say I brought it on myself, but this is the first haircut I've hated in about a decade. I cried myself to sleep over it last night, it's that bad.

Before we start, observe my cute outfit from the other post. This is the only way I could figure of taking a full length shot, because I have not the technical skills.

Taken immediately when I got home, before the full horror of what I'd done sunk in.

Today: reality bites.

DUDE I THINK YOUR HAIR LOOKS GREAT. I am jealous of your baaaanggsss they are so cuuuuute. ALSO: HAIR GROWS BACK? FRET NOT, MON CHERIE. Unless it takes a ridiculously long time for your hair to grow, I bet it'll be back to pre-cut length in like 6 months. Not like that matters though really, because IT LOOKS GREAT YOU SILLY.

ALSO: I have the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack. Are you deadset on buying it, or would you like it freesies? I also think I owe you another song? YES. CLAIR DE LUNE.

Also I would like you to please note that I clearly skimmed this entry (I'M SORRY IT IS NOTHING PERSONAL; I WAS DISTRACTED BY THE PHONE) before writing my comment, as you clearly mention that your hair grows very slow.

I await your punishment. :(

Nah, in six months it'll get below my shoulders again - it took two years from my chin. But RIGHT NOW IT IS SO SHORT AAAGGGH.

Your icons are so awesome!

I KNOW I KNOW and on some level I'm like, okay, it's all right, but on the other - it gets really flat under hats and in rain and I look like a Polish person. Which, all the Polish who come here have the same haircut and tight jeans, IT'S NOT GOOD OKAY.

I ... shouldn't, but I really would like it right now! And I also know the shops won't have it for aaaaaaaaaaaaages, if at all, because only one out of five cinemas in the city is playing it and one of the two big music shops is closing down. So. Plz? :D

I have it fluffed up at the mo. It's very eighties.

I don't mind the rest of it - although an inch or two more might have been better - but god. The fringe. She kept saying ARE YOU SURE? Now I see what she meant.

I am a slob. Is this not known? :D

But it looks so cute!! Maybe you just have buyer's remorse and it's clouding your judgmnt of your super cute hair?

I'm not sure what buyer's remorse is, but it sure sounds like something I'd do. I think it's the fringe. It's pretty awful, though I DEMANDED it.

I felt the same after I watched Juno, actually. I actually liked it a lot while I was watching it, but going back and thinking about it later, I decided I didn't. It was the opposite with the third Pirates of the Caribbean move, though. I definitely didn't like it while I was watching it, but decided the next day that I liked it a lot. I've yet to see Slumdog Millionaire.

And I actually like your hair a lot! But then, when I got my hair cut in December, everyone else liked it a lot and I still hated it, so. But I can say in the month since, I've grown to enjoy it quite a bit. Maybe it'll grow on you? (Oh, bad puns, you are my favorite)

Juno's dialogue pissed me off no end. I haven't liked any of the Pirates except the first; they are far too overblown for my tastes.

Your hair looks really really awesome, and I didn't realise you were so outrageously attractive, either. *thumbs up* xD

I had a hair cut yesterday! It is all Alice Cullen esque, omg. xD

Ahaha I suppose I could sort of say the same about mine, except that it wasn't intentional!

Yeah? I was going to see Slumdog Millionaire, but then the story broke about the child stars still living in slums under tarps and, you know. Gah.

Your hair looks terribly cute, but you're allowed to hate it.

OMG really? That's outrageous! But, well, considering the story of the movie ... almost to be expected.

I hope I won't keep hating it, though; that would be exhausting. Are you doing BBB? If so, how goes it?
Blindmouseblindmouse on January 29th, 2009 10:50 pm (UTC)
OMG really?

Here. I don't know, it's one story. I haven't looked into it any further. Sad and ridiculous, though.

Are you doing BBB?

Unless I sign up before midnight ... no. I thought about it, because 20,000 words is a good length for a challenge fic, but I'm already trying to write so many things, and most of them will never get written, and, you know. This year was going to be the year of concentrating on original projects. To be fair last year was going to be that year too, but ... fingers crossed.

How's yours going? What's it about, so that I can look forward to it?

I'm sure they weren't paid as much as the dude from Skins, but I bet they were paid something. Hmm.

I wish I had the faith in my original stuff that you do ... I spent most of my time pretending it doesn't exist. :D

It was going to be a beauty pageant AU, but that turned waaaaaaaaaaay too indulgent, so it's looking like ten-years-in-the-future fic. Panic, bien sur!
Blindmouse: scribbleblindmouse on January 29th, 2009 11:10 pm (UTC)
I ... am not sure that I understand the concept of a beauty pageant AU which is too indulgent. Also, if you don't ever write it I may cry. Just, you know, fair warning.

I do a bit of pretending the original stuff doesn't exist too. And then I write something like the love potion fic which actually ought to have been original fic, it didn't need to be bandom at all, and then I feel ridiculous and make determined faces at myself.

i actually think it suits your 'look'. it goes really well with the cute outfit.

Oh, yay! I was so sad that it wasn't as pritty as before, you see.
oopsoddishly on January 29th, 2009 11:11 pm (UTC)
Well, I think it looks cool. :) The fringe only needs to be half an inch longer, if that, or clips and grips and - stuff (idk, my hair is shooooort, 'stuff' covers it!), and you seem to have plenty of them. :)

Also, outfit! <3

Really only elfin people can pull off elfin haircuts, but still. The fringe looks better today with a hairband, ergo I will have to weld one to my head.

I think it's cute! Your old hair was perhaps cutER but this is still really adorable! I wish I could have your bangs and not look like I was from the 80s. You are a lucky girl. :)

That's the biggest gripe I have with it - if it was a cut on its own, fine, but compared to the last one ... *cries* Possibly I do look like I'm from the eighties? But I was born in the eighties, yeah [insert rest of song here].
peripatetic extemporizationshatoyona on January 31st, 2009 12:46 am (UTC)
Well it will grow back! That's the magic of bad haircuts. You totally don't look like you're from the 80s (in the bad way, since I was also born then)!

Your haircut is so cute though! I like how it's sort of fanned out in the third shot, and the bands are adorable.

Ahaha, I agree with you about Juno. I was like, awesome! Then I was thinking about for a while, and going...hm? The soundtrack! That was what I liked best, I got it immediately! :D

Though I totally loved this bandom fic that's based on Juno, it's Mikey/Spencer! I love it. ;)

I did that on purpose, but it got flattened in the rain, so the overall effect was one of electrocution.

My brother liked it even more! That one about 'if I were a flower and you were a bee'? They play that on the bus to their rugby matches! It's their fight song!

It looks cute... and while you may not be a cute-liking person, it really does look fine. Besides, in a couple of centuries, the bangs will be longer and you'll have grown from cute to sultry. It's a win-win cut.

I do like cute! I like cute to a disgusting extent, it's just I thought this haircut was funky rather than cute? But I'll experiment when it's not so greasy and full of sea-salt spray (wtf, hairdresser!).

I think the new haircut is really cute on you! (The curls on the old haircut look really gorgeous, though, but that's because I can never do curls.)

They ain't natural, now! GHD curls all the way. I am pretty expert at them and my friends force me to style theirs all the time, but tbh I was quite bored of doing them on myself. Result: an inch long fringe. Oh dear...
